About Val Seymour

The Front Street Inn & Spa opened in 2005. This is a new two story building, designed and built by Thomas Laurie, artist and builder who passed away in March of 2012. His life partner, Valerie Seymour, owns and operates the Inn & spa. Val is hotelier, housekeeper, spa manager and esthetician. She lives on site and is known to sneak off in the day to surf, swim, hike or take her dog LuLu for a walk. She loves living and working in her beautiful building by the sea. val was a former local teacher in the public schools for 25 yrs, ran Bay Beauty Spa for 20 yrs and now manages both the Inn & Spa.

Val Seymour purchased this hotel in 2005

Why Val Seymour chose Central Coast

bought this property 20 yrs ago while I was a teacher. My husband and I starting the bldg process in 2000.

It was a life changing process for us to get the bldg built.

Wonderful tenants downstairs are Morro Rock surf shop and La Parisienne Bakery. Upstairs are 2 studio apartments and two spa treatment rooms and I live upstairs as well.

What makes this hotel unique

Views of the harbor far exceed any other property in Morro Bay.

We are across the street from the commercial fishing boats, Stax wine bar and boat gas dock. Morro Rock and sandspit is directly across the street. You are walking distance to the shops, restaurants and the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most enjoyable stay !! I can't express enough how wonderful it was to NOT feel like we were in a hotel. Being a hotel manager, it was just great to feel as if we were with friends in a beautiful room. I hope that we can make it back soon !! Also our massages were fantastic !!

A Beautiful Bargain

  • 5 of 5

Only two rooms available and they are sort of "hidden" upstairs in this waterfront business building. Once you find it you are in for a fabulous stay. Wow - Morro Rock is RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU from your room windows. Get a great bottle of wine from the wine bar across the street and toast the sunset from your own paradise. Beds and bathroom are perfect. Nice mini-fridge for your snacks. You must go downstairs to the French Bakery in the morning for the best croisants and other goodies this side of France. And one more thing - these rooms are part of a small private spa - my girlfriend and I splurged on some pedis and facials that were excellently done.

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

True, this property has a beautiful view and is in a great location. However, the add is completely inaccurate which was very disappointing. The add says a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom with a frig, microwave and coffee maker. This property has two separate 1 bedroom/1 bathrooms that are rented out separately but advertised as getting both. Also, the microwave and coffee maker are outside of the room, in the hallway. Had I known this when exploring this property, I would have booked elsewhere for myself and my friends. For a single person or a couple, this would be a great place to stay, but not a small group of women. The owner didn't take any responsibility for this false advertising and blamed it on vrbo. When we tried to negotiate with the owner to lower the price since we only got a one bedroom instead of two, Val showed no interest in making this situation better and said "No one has complained before." On the contrary, when we contacted VRBO, they were in agreement with the false advertising and were able to find us another property at the last minute. Although we had to start our vacation by talking to vrbo on the phone for several hours to three different people, then had to move to a hotel for one night, then had to move again to a house for the remainder of our stay, at least vrbo was willing to work with us to make our stay better. It really is the principal of the matter and when being in the service industry, you should advertise honestly.

Owner's Response: Apparently there was some miscommunication here. My business has been here for over ten years and I have never had a response like this. We had many emails back and forth which allowed for clarification of details. I completely understand that the clients expectations were unusual and it colored their vision. I offered free massages at my spa onsite for all three ladies, which was equal to a night's stay. Nothing seemed to be enough. Guess you can't please everybody. VRBO response was reasonable and accommodating.

fabulous rooms with a view and bakery!

  • 5 of 5

Felt like home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Clean and unique rooms with 3D view made me just want to sit and watch the boats pass by. But couldn't resist the fantastic bakery downstairs with treats to die for. Looking forward to our return. Thanks for the hospitality Val!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view of the bay. Very spacious room. My husband and I and our 10 yr old son had plenty of room. The bakery downstairs was great. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Val was great and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Will definitely be back.

We are located at the quiet, north end of the busy embarcadero. We have spa services (massage, facials) available on-site as well as bakery/cafe and surf shop. Most people enjoy watching the waterfront from our spacious windows while enjoying a glass of wine on our comfortable couches. Scenic walks to Morro Rock, kayaking, SUP, surfing and tour boats are right outside our front door. People often drive up the coast to tour Hearst castle and stop to view the elephant seals. Local wineries in Templeton and Paso Robles are a favorite pastime. Our sister city of San Luis Obispo has a variety of entertainment, shops and restaurants. There are walking and hiking tours scheduled out of our Natural History museum. Our local state park at Montana de Oro has a wide variety of hiking trails and ocean vistas.
